From 17 October 2016, delegates who attend a GWO Training course must create a profile in WINDA www.winda.globalwindsafety.org in order to get a WINDA ID which they must supply to ARCH prior to completing the training.
The same WINDA ID follows you through your career in the wind industry and must be used by you for all future GWO training.
The WINDA ID is a unique, random and system generated number which serves as the main Delegate identification. It is therefore important that you always keep your WINDA profile active and up to date and supply employers and Training Providers with your ID when requested.
When you have successfully completed a GWO Training course, ARCH will upload the record of the completed course into WINDA. It is therefore important that you create a profile in WINDA and supply ARCH with your unique ID before you attend a training course from October 17, 2016.
You need to register as a Delegate at www.winda.globalwindsafety.org (from October 17) via the “Register” option. Choose to be registered in WINDA as a Delegate and fill out the required information.
You must only register for one profile in WINDA. If you have multiple WINDA accounts, the Training Provider will not be able to upload records to each account and your accounts may be closed without warning by GWO.
You can view your own training records in WINDA and print a copy of them.
Any records of training that have been completed prior to October 17, 2016 will not be added to your profile. Therefore, you will still need to present your previous certificate(s) to your employers/site owners until you attend the refresher course which will then be added to your profile in WINDA.
Those attending should be medically fit to carry out the practical part of the course and free from medical contra-indications that may prevent them from working safely (A list of conditions that could affect practical training is available on request). Course participants will be required to provide confirmation that they possess a valid medical certificate or self-certify their medical and physical fitness before commencement of the course. Participants should be aged 18 years or over.
